Oddball Set of the Month: 1986 Fleer Baseball’s Best

The 1986 Fleer Baseball’s Best set was one of many mini boxed sets that came out in the mid to late 1980’s.  Topps may have started the fad with their infamous K-Mart set in 1982, but Fleer soon became the unofficial “King of the Boxed Sets”.  They pumped out a bunch of very forgettable sets in a span of only -a couple of years.  The 1986 Baseball’s Best set stands out for a couple of reasons.  One reason is it actually has a nice design.  The other reason is the list of rookie cards in the set.

The 1986 Baseball’s Best set is composed of 22 Hitters and 22 Pitchers.  Of the 44 total cards, 17 are now Hall of Famers.  The set also includes rookie cards of Wally Joyner, Jose Canseco, Will Clark, and Bobby Witt.  Overall, it’s a fun little set that holds plenty of nostalgia for guys like me.  For the price though, I think everyone should have a set.

Take a look and judge for yourself…
